Biography

Sophie Goldingay is a senior lecturer in the School of Health and Social Development at Deakin University, and is currently Bachelor of Social Work Honours Coordinator and a Teaching and Learning Coordinator within the School of Health and Social Development. She uses mixed methods and cross-cultural research approaches with institutionalised populations such as prisoners and people with psychiatric disabilities, people with learning disabilities, and equity and access in Higher Education. She led a team which created a Multidimensional Framework for Embedded Academic Skill Development which won the Deakin Vice Chancellor's award for Excellent Contributions to Equity and Access in 2012. The project has led to significant developments across the Faculty of Health, including a Pathways project with the local TAFE in Geelong, and a project embedding academic skills into the Bachelor of Social Work. She is also the recipient of two teaching awards, one from the School of Health and Social Development as part of a project team in 2011, and a Commendation for Excellence in Teaching from the Faculty of Health in 2013.

Research interests

Sophies research interests include qualitative research with institutionised populations such as prisoners and people with psychiatric disabilities. The impact of neoliberalism and managerialism on social service provision and tertiary institutions is also of interest. Post structural theoretical approaches as informed by Foucault, Rose and others have significant value in analyzing social practices and power relations.
